I spent years with foolish neurologists who thought I had migraines. Every migraine medication failed with bad side effects. My symptoms were off. It’s like they weren’t aware there are other kinds of headaches, some, really as painful as severe migraines.
I have chronic tension headache. I’m always at some level of pain, but I can mostly get by, though it does affect my concentration. I found a neurologist who specialized in headaches treatment. Chorizo, steroid treatment, botox… None worked. One day I bought a memory foam contour pillow. It was like a miracle! I still have pain, but never anything as severe as it used to be.
My point is… Ask questions. You may have something besides migraine. If your doctor isn’t open to discussing those things, do what I did. Say, “You’re an idiot.” CNN find another doctor. To many people are focused on migraines. Realistically, you can’t have a migraine for weeks and be likely to survive. You certainly wouldn’t be functional. You’d be in the hospital. Been there myself.
You may have migraines. But you might have cluster headaches or tension headaches. Track your pain carefully and talk to your doctor. The answer could be as simple as the right pillow!
